"Who am I? Who am I? " shrieks my soul every time.

My being a woman is my only crime.

I am a victim of gender discrimination

Which has been blindly followed by society in the name of tradition.

Treated like a doormat for no rhyme or reason.

Victim of violence in all forms and season.

Stalking, murder and rape are the latest fads,

For a guy to satisfy his lust from a girl he can never have.

Often regarded as a weaker sex,

Raised on a diet of inferiority complex.

But, beware, o, misogynists, Shakti or power is our name.

We, too, will rise like a phoenix, to status and fame.

We will tolerate indifference, no more.

Treated as a servant in a day and at night as a whore.

We are also humans, treat us with dignity,

Let’s raise the moral standards of humanity.

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊
